Whether you’re thinking of a side hustle, or you’ve already got one, or maybe you just want to find out more about the whole thing…this event is going to help you ace your side hustle game. We’re going to talk about the journey to starting-up, tackle some big misconceptions, talk about red-flags and things to watch out for, and plenty more.
